Virginia McLaurin is living the centenarian’s dream. Over the weekend, the 106-year-old, who was born a decade before the first anti-lynching bill was passed in America, met President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama and got on the good foot to celebrate. (If we live this long and can still move this fast,…
A woman named Ann Dilley is taking the term “career student” to an entirely new level.
In a clip from an episode of BBC’s This Wild Life, which follows wildlife expert Saba Douglas-Hamilton and her family’s move to the Samburu National Reserve in Kenya (sort of an IRL The Wild Thornberrys), Saba and her young kids hang out with Sokotei, a recently orphaned baby elephant, at an orphanage in Nairobi.
There is a 77-year-old woman in Brookyln that’s stronger than you. Her name is Constance Tillet, she does CrossFit and… we’ve really gotta get back in the game, don’t we?
Hip-hop is growing in Uganda, so much so that teens are being hired to rap the nightly news and using their bars to push for social change.
Add Boston to the list of places deploying goats as gardeners (of a sort).
Just a quick memo to all our loyal readers: See that little guy up top? He’s a southern pudu fawn, and henceforth, Jezebel will be worshipping this absolutely darling creature as our own implacable and terrible god. Adjust your shrines accordingly.
::checks watch:: Oh look, it's squee time! Here we have some ridiculously adorable kittens playing with toy trucks, which is a thing that kittens need to do, obviously.
The lesson is: Never try. Or try. You're going to end up in the same place regardless.
Okay, I am a sucker for pregnancy announcement videos (or maybe a glutton for teary-eyed emotional punishment), but this couple has figured out a pretty perfect way to surprise their loved ones with baby news and of course film their reaction.
I am not exaggerating when I say that the Shedd Aquarium's new rescued baby otter is so cute that watching videos of her ottering around is an almost emotionally overwhelming experience. I'm near tears. It's too much.
There is nothing cuter in the world than a baby otter cleaning its face. Nothing. If I could give birth to baby sea otters instead of baby people, I'd never stop being pregnant. I would be the Michelle Duggar of otter pups. As such, it makes perfect and absolute sense to me that the entirety of the city of Chicago is…
Thirty-nine years ago in Japan, Hello Kitty, the global emissary of cuteness, made her public debut. She appeared on a plastic coin purse priced at 240 yen, or about 80 cents.
Sully the Saint Bernard doesn't appreciate that such human concepts as "making a living" and "working hours" interfere with his quality time with his person. So when his person arrives home, he demands quality time in the form of slobbery hugs (and hugs are not optional when your dog weighs as much as a couch).
This morning, National Geographic uploaded a photo of a baby Antarctic fur seal and it is the cutest motherfucking thing I've ever fucking seen.
This golden retriever, much like your cousin Chad, cannot even fucking cope with his excitement about football season. He loves it so much, in fact, that some Septembers he will hop back and forth laterally for NEARLY TWO POINT FIVE MINUTES STRAIGHT. (Much like your cousin Chad.) And that is just the hopping we know…
Parents know that checking out an ultrasound for the first time can be a joyous occasion, but it can also be completely unnerving to think of all the things that could possibly go wrong. But when your unborn baby gives you the thumbs up, you can probably relax and just enjoy it.
Sometimes kids don’t want a new sibling because they want all of their parents’ attention and others … they think mom and dad are going to swap them out for new kids. Meet Tré who is “exasperated” by his mother’s reproductive choices.
Hello Kitty is one of the most easily recognizable characters in the history of modern culture. She's the smileless (well, mouthless) Mona Lisa. And this year, she's turning 40 (just two years until Esquire can deem her bangable)! But did you know that Hello Kitty is not actually a cat? No? Well that's probably…
